A Month of CrossFit - Day 4

Consider My Butt Kicked

In the wee hours of the morning, probably after hitting the snooze button on my 6:00 a.m. alarm, I had a dream that my CrossFit coach called and told me that the class was cancelled for today. I remember thinking in the dream, "Heck yes, I can sleep in for another hour," and then my alarm went off for a second time, firing my 6:30 a.m. warning shot. Back to reality.

I didn't accomplish the last-minute routine as well this morning as I did yesterday, probably because my brain was still fooled by my subconscious desire to sleep in, but I made it to the gym, bread and water in hand, for the most insane workout of the week.

15 wall ball press
15 suitcase lifts
15 push-ups (I still did these on my knees, but I did all 15, chest to ground, without stopping)
50m high knees
50m skips
50m butt kicks
50m high knee skips

One max rep strict press (I hit 65lbs)

3 rounds of:
400m run
21 kettlebell swings (at 8kg - 17lbs)
12 pull ups

I made myself run at least half of each 400m run. My muscles were screaming on the last rep of kettlebell swings and pull ups, but the other CrossFit-ers were cheering me on, telling me I was almost there, that I could do it... and I finished strong. 

My whole body hurts, but in a proud, "yeah, I did that" kind of way. And I like it.
